I fly from Phoenix to Chicago, ORD and have 1h 48 minutes layover to catch another plane to Munich in Germany. The plane from Phoenix lands at Terminal 1 at ORD and my next plane to Munich also departs from Terminal 1 at ORD. Would 1h and 48 minutes be enough to catch a plane to Munich? I would be thankful for your tips.

All the best,

Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
What is the expected walk time from Mid- F concourse Terminal 2 to Polaris Lounge Mid C concourse Terminal 1?

Yes, that's enough time if the flight from Syracuse is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal 3.

I have a 1 hour 20 min layover in Terminal 3 is there any place I can smoke and make it back in time?
Maybe barely enough time to leave security, smoke, and get back through security and to your flight. There are no secure-side smoking areas at O'Hare.
